Daylilies – photo by Karl July 2011


This was the last lily, August 2015.

each flower
a star for a time


So many daylilies, we need to clear the path, which means enough for a bouquet.  This photo is from July 2016.


This is a photo from August 2017, with a few hosta flowers and leaves, and daylily leaves.

Local Stores


This is another photo from yesterday.  Leaves fall in the petunia planter, near the garden mum.

We enjoy our local stores in Oostburg, Cedar Grove, Sheboygan, and other places.

This is another interesting photo by Karl, after an early Spring storm.

I am wondering how some of my photos may look in a journal with black and white photography.
